Oct 7, Descenders Ride Report for Elfin forest and Double Peak

Hi Guys,

Lots of rides and runs being posted on Strava.  Rick is now training with Strava records in mind and he is KOM all over the place.  Rick missed our group ride today as he was smokin’ it up the south grade of Palomar.  The group was large, we had 15 riders.  It was quite cool when we left PQ to head over the casa Voris.  We picked up the early guys and pedaled over to meeting spot at Pomerado and RB.  Sheehan pulled in just as the group was about to roll and Cresap was late. back at the light as we went towards Lake Hodges.  Jeff knows all the short cuts so he met up with us by the mall.  Our pace was spirited and down right fast at times during the ride.  We motored in a paceline through Elfin Forest; going 28 mph around those curves is a little tense for me.  The gang regrouped before the climb up Double Peak.  Views from the top were spectacular; another postcard day in San Diego.  The pace did not slow down a bit as we made our way back to Rancho Sante Fe and cruised stud loop; lots of pushes to the finish.  We climbed up the 3 witches to Santaluz and guys split everywhere from there to get back home.  I pedaled back to the bike path and home with 57 miles of riding and over 4,300 feet of climbing.

Good day to be on a bike; see you next Sat for our Retro Ride day.
